Solid family Cafe off the 118 on Arboles.
Location shares a parking lot with Ciscos and a strip mall so there is plenty of shopping. We went on a Friday night and it was nearly empty, which was concerning. The prices were reasonable; perhaps $3-4 higher per plate than you'd expect from similar cafes.
The service was 3-4 stars. Not great, but not terrible. The food was good overall. I got a Chicken Parm Sandwich which was tasty. My son had a flat bread pepperoni pizza which was pretty large and tasted good. My wife had a grilled chicken sandwich. Overall, the food was fresh and well prepared. Drinks were refilled after a short delay, but we didn't have to chase after the waitress.
The restaurant has nice booths and large TV's to watch sports. Frankly was surprised it was so empty on a Friday night.
Overall, a nice cafe to grab a bite. Family of four cost $60 after tip. Bit high for a cafe, but not crazy expensive. 4 stars.

I had been wanting to try this place for awhile and finally did this evening. The menu is HUGE and they have all kinds of options for anyone with a different kind of diet. I had a vegan breakfast that consisted of wild rice, tofu, and veggies with a side of tater tots. I can't resist tater tots! It was great except a bit too spicy for my tastes... next time will request that they go easy on the spice. Actually, next time I'll be ordering some of those delicious pancakes. We sat at the counter, which is always my preferred spot in a diner. Our server was awesome... didn't catch his name but he was a very friendly young guy who was doing a fabulous job behind the counter. Can't wait to go back for pancakes!

Good Local Food
Good for breakfast and lunch. Nice and large menu with something for everyone. BrEakfast is,my favorite and menu has lots of sweet and savory options. Normal prices and comfortable atmosphere. My experience has been that service is slow but not terribly.

Amazing & Extensive menu. Best Breakfast in Santa Monica!!
Every time I go to Jinky's, I try something new. Everything has been 5 stars. When I go for breakfast I have a hard time deciding sweet or savory. While you decide, they bring you your own jug of coffee to keep at the table. 3 cups later..
Go Sweet with these - Flaky French Toast, Red Velvet or Pumpkin Waffles, Berry Nutty Crepe
Go Savory with these - Healthy Scramble, Garden Scramble, Athens Delight, French Garden or just a classic Eggs Benedict
For fellow Vegetarians, they serve soy chorizo, soy bacon, and other yummy soy products.

This place is hands down my favorite breakfast place in the Valley!! Its always crowded on the weekends, but its worth the wait in my opinion. The staff is awesome, the menu extensive and the coffee is SO good. (Why is good coffee so hard to come by at breakfast places!??!) I love that they bring coffee pots to the table and leave them :) The menu has a nice variety of healthy and not so healthy dishes, but the MUST TRY's are the Desperado with tater tots inside ;) Pumpkin pancakes rule, and also the hash eggs benedict...YUM. Its a great place to meet up with friends and hang, they are never rushing you out of the place. Very casual . I highly recommend.
